One of the most conventional mail delivery solutions preferred by strip malls and business centers are cluster box units or CBU mailboxes. These commercial cluster mailboxes are a common sight in these areas.
For tenanted locations, residential cluster mailboxes such as apartment mailboxes are utilized. Many high-density housing complexes such as condominiums make use of these mailboxes as well.
One of the most significant yet often overlooked aspects of cluster box units (CBUs) is numbering for quick and easy identification of mailbox tenant doors.
Every cluster box unit (CBU) is customizable with particular numbers or may also be ordered standard with numbering beginning from one, and so on and forth, depending on the total number of cluster box units.
To guide you in numbering your CBUs, here are a few tips:
Cluster Box Units Include Enhanced Tenant’s Safety
Any apartment or condominium building owner desires to retain their tenants for as long as possible. This equally means more profits.
A safe and secured community makes tenants happy and contented. Identity theft is a prevalent crime, and one of the ways to prevent this is to number CBU mailboxes uniquely. It is always better not to match the number of the tenant’s condo or apartment unit with the number on their respective CBU.
Why? Because thieves can quickly identify their victims if the numbers exactly match. The best thing to do is to uniquely number the CBUs in such a way that only the tenants can identify their mailbox units themselves.
Cluster Boxes – Ease of use
Imagine the number of times per week each tenant must share their address with others. Because the numbers, as advised above, shouldn’t match their condominium’s or apartment’s space, it is very important to consider the numbering to be easy to remember and simple to mark to each address. No tenant will ever like to write or give out their address in a difficult manner.
You may utilize simple and easy numbering, such as the ones that come standard with CBUs, or use simple alphanumeric combinations.
For larger communities that require more than one cluster box unit, the numbering for each can be the same, while building numbers can be changed to produce a unique address.
Cluster Mailboxes – Aesthetic appeal
Of course, as with any element in a house, building or community as a whole, visual appearance should be given priority. Match the numbering on the mailbox doors with the existing design, color and style of the location where they will be placed. Choose carefully the right engravings or placards on your CBUs because these will greatly affect the aesthetic appeal of the whole area.
Tenants will be surely pleased when they see that even the smallest details on their CBUs were given attention.
All these mailbox units come standard with silver placard for identification, but you can always opt to make yours distinct with various customization options. You may have the numbers or any identification engraved and filled with either black or white epoxy.
For custom engraving, make sure to pick contrasting hues. Black, dark bronze and forest green CBUs are perfect with white-filled engravings for maximum visibility. On the other hand, postal grey, white and sandstone mailbox units are suitable for black-filled engravings.
